Wynn Resorts general counsel steps down July 15

Casino operator Wynn Resorts has announced that its general counsel and executive vice president Kim Sinatra will be resigning from the company effective July 15, 2018.

Wynn Resorts did not give a reason for her departure, and only said that Ms. Sinatra and the company has not finalized the terms of her transition and departure.

Sinatra, 58, joined the company in 2004, becoming the company’s general counsel in 2006. She has been considered the No. 2 at Wynn Resorts after CEO Matt Maddox.

Her departure comes at a time when regulators are continuing their investigation into the company’s handling of Steve Wynn’s sexual harassment scandal.

Replacing Sinatra is the company’s new general counsel, Ellen Whittemore, according to a report from Wall Street Journal, which cited unnamed sources.

The company itself has declined to comment about any successor to Ms. Sinatra.
